Four Courses Available To Aspiring Referees

The new season is just weeks away, and whilst playing may not be for everybody, there’s a great way to stay active, be central to the game – and develop an unrivalled knowledge of the laws of the game – becoming a referee within the North Riding region.

Refereeing is a perfect way to get involved in grassroots football. Without match officials – there is no game, after all.

North Riding FA’s referee development programme offers courses, training and support for all county officials – with the first step The FA Referee Course.

Over the coming months, North Riding FA is hosting FOUR FA Refereeing Courses across the region, ensuring that everybody has access.
